Our Heart Yearns

Scan-046

C.S. Lewis was a wise man, from as far as I can gather.  He at least has some really good quotes!  I have three to share with you this week.

I love the word YEARNS, and it is a word that we just don’t hear anymore–

  • have an intense feeling of longing for something, typically something that one has lost or been separated from.
  • be filled with compassion or warm feeling.
    synonyms are:  long for, pine for, crave, desire, want, wish for, hanker for, covet, lust after/for, pant for, hunger for, burn for, thirst for, ache for, eat one’s heart out for, have one’s heart set on

And it carries so much meaning!  We do yearn for heaven.  We don’t just want it, we search for it with intensity.  So many people are searching for that one thing that will bring them joy–and when we do finally surrender to Christ and feel that joy–we understand.  As Lewis says, Earth cannot supply it.  Only Heaven.

I am so glad we have found Heaven and joy.

Go, Tell, and make disciples of all nations--spread the good news.
